Obama: "Martha's Opponent Decided To Park His Truck On Wall St"

"I do want somebody who's independent. I want a Senator who's going to put the interests of working folks all across Massachusetts first. Ahead of party. Ahead of special interests. And here's what I know, is that Martha has done so. She's got a track record of doing so. I know there are things on which she and I disagree - I respect her for that. She doesn't just call herself independent, she has the character to be independent. So I hear her opponent is calling himself independent and you gotta look under the hood.

"When the vote comes on financial regulatory reform and the choice is between standing with Wall St or standing up for common sense reforms that will protect consumers and protect our economy from future crises, who's going to be in your side? Now we learned the answer to that one this week. Now keep in mind, Democrats in Congress voted for tax cuts for middle class families and businesses. Now what we're proposing is that tax payers get their money back from the rescue we had to engage in in the beginning of this year because of the bad regulatory practices of the previous administration.

And so we asked Martha's opponent what's he gonna do? And he decided to park his truck on Wall Street."

UPDATE - from independocrat:
The Wall Street front group Club for Growth is strongly "boosting" Brown and is expected to run ads in support for him.

According to recent disclosures, the Club for Growth is funded by a $1.4 million dollar donation from investor Stephen Jacksons of Stephens Groups Inc, a $1.4 million dollar donation from broker Richard Gilder, and $210,000-$630,000 donations from at least 10 other investors and financial industry professionals.

Read the whole article - this is what's under Scott Brown's hood:http://thinkprogress.org/2010/01/15/wallst-scott-brown /

13. He's opened himself for a real zinger by Brown.
We'll have to see what the response is.

14. To tell you the truth, I'm more worried about the machines than
the machinations.

It all sounds so familiar. A pretty secure seat suddenly losing support, last minute hoopla and vapor voting. :(

... "fired up and ready to go."

It's certainly better than apathy. :)

(and the fact that is makes you mad is part of what I'm referring to.)

3. He is a slick Wall Street Repubs trying to fool us into believing he is an average guy.

11. It might not start--it does have 200K miles on it after all.
Scott Brown and his truck are alike--they're both pieces of shit.

4. I guess Obama doesn't realize he hasn't earned his anti wall street creds yet.
Kind of sad.

Who is helping him with a reality check?

is this absurd, I find the fact that he apparently thinks we're this fucking stupid is so far beyond insulting I don't even have words for it. I don't think I've ever felt on the receiving end of contempt this acute.
